It's Tuesday and thus, time for you Tuesdays' Tools segment. I have chosen to share one of Ella's favorite items in the stamping drawer. Sponge Daubers! I think she likes them because she can put a full pack on her fingers like olives.
You can use them with your pastels, ink pads, but I usually pair them up with glossy paper like I have done with this sample. I stayed in the Old Olive, Taken with Teal and Dusty Durango vein and have created another "teenage" boy card. Have I mentioned that I'm SO jazzed that I have this Extreme Snowboarder stamp? It was one of my FREE Sale-a-bration choices last month. I first ran my glossy paper through the Big Shot with a Texture Plate, then stamped the Snowboarder with Basic Gray and let him dry. Once the image was dry, I donned my daubers. I inked them in the appropriate color and just squiggled down the paper. Fun card in honor of the Winter Olympics Snowboard Team and a certain 10 year old boy that thinks that stuff is SOOOOO cool.

- Stamps: Extreme Snowboarder #(115117), On Your Birthday (#111664) Inks: Taken with Teal, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango (in-color!). CS: Same as inks and with Glossy, Misc: Sponge Daubers, Crop-a-dile, Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets (108431)
- I used direct to paper with the Chocolate Chip pad to get more of a rustic edgy feel with the sponged ink. Using a dauber would have given a softer more feminine look.
